Not as legit as getting the guitar you ordered.
But like you get all your money back and a call. That’s worth at least 60 bucks.
Animals As Leaders In Customer Service.
Being able to SAY you had a preorder with Abasi Guitars isworth at least $500 in internet reputation points anyway.
And if you keep your pre-order instead of taking the refund you are guaranteed an even lower serial number.
Jokes on you: the serial numbers will be randomly generated. Mwahahaha!
Let’s just all remember that I sold some to the Japanese is not a reasonable explanation, excuse, or confirmation of anything.
They will buy anything.

Haha I saw some Acacias in Japan too
These shops will buy anything. So many random boutique guitars that have been on their racks for years.
Final update: got my refund. Shitty situation, but I'm satisfied with how it was resolved
Glad the refund actually came through
Tosin has too big of a following to screw with people's money. His career would be over if he took it and ran.
Keith Merrow shilled for BRJ till the very end and no one seems to remember that.
Big followings insulate more than anything else.
But, it's good that Jeph got his money back, I hope everyone fairs as well.
Pepperidge Farm remembers....
But yeah, there have been loads of guys who repped companies that ended up hosing people. Ultimately, the only ones left holding the bag (that doesn't contain a guitar) is the people who paid out money.
True, although I'd make him record a greeting for my phone. "Hi, this is Tosin Abasi, guitarist from Animals as Leaders. Andy can't come to the phone right now, prolly cuz he is jamming with me, but leave your name and number, and we'll get right back atcha."
"Hi, I'm Tosin Abasi and Phil Collins is my favorite musician of all time. If I ever deny this in the future I am lying."
Update from my headless Abasi pre-order: I had discussed some options with Tosin over the phone just prior to Jeph's conversation with him. Was really hoping that there was a way to finish my build as it was already well underway and I had picked out an incredible top for it, which was glued to the body months ago and routed for headless hardware, neck, etc. Unfortunately completing it isn't an option at this point, and I received a full refund this morning. Really hoping they reach out at some point in the future to say "hey, we can finally complete your build now!" but not going to hold my breath.
Seems weird that they would put in that much work and then not finish it. Gave a full refund too... seems like such a waste. I don't get what they will do with it now. Did they run out of funds or something? This seems a bit weird.
I don't think they'd be issuing refunds if they had literally run out of funds. There has to be some kind of reason for this halt in production, maybe wood supply was compromised? Who knows, I hope they can get everything back on track.
Well running out of funds were the wrong words. But maybe they projected they wouldn't have enough so they refunded before that would happen. As a business, they could always take out a loan if they were close to running out of funds to refund everyone.
